Product Overview

Location: Gainesville, Florida USA

About: A lone baby oak tree off of Newberry Road in Gainesville glows proudly in an enchanted emerald meadow.  Raw image captured with a near infrared filter.  The ethereal characteristics of infrared truly expose the hidden magical aura of this landscape.  An interesting fact is that "Pink Meadow" (sold separately) is the same oak tree, just ~2 years older.  I plan to take progression shots of this beautiful oak as time passes.

Type: Near-Infrared Art Photography:  Individual special glass filters that range from 590nm to 900nm (EM spectral wavelength) are attached to the camera's lens which allow Hugo to capture the ethereal and surreal world emergent from the near infrared spectrum.

 
TWO OPTIONS:
 
Fine Art Prints [FAP]: Silver Halide Metallic Art Print with unparalleled 3-D depth, tone & sharpness as compared to regular prints. This museum quality archival paper and process uses a patented combination of film and laminate layers that result in a striking, 3-Dimensional, extremely vivid, lasting image on an ultra-bright pearlescent / metallic background (archival value rated at 100 years in home display and 200 years in dark storage).
 
METAL PRINTS - Infused on Aluminum:  This is currently the highest quality, most vibrant and clear medium for fine art photography.  Art Photography's "High Definition" Display -- Those that have seen one in person will swear the clarity feels like they are looking through a window!
 
Hugo Cruz exclusively uses CHROMALUXE™ metal templates which offer the best/top standard in metal print quality (if it's not CHROMALUXE™ then it is not the best).  How are they made?  Through an advanced chemical heat sublimation process that literally infuses inks onto CHROMALUXE™ polished and coated aluminum substrates with amazing HD clarity.  They are museum quality, scratch resistant, UV resistant, waterproof, archival, lightweight, modern and no refractive glass, framing or matting necessary -- just the full art image beautifully displayed on your wall.  Your metal print will include an attached floating mount with picture wire which will give the image a modern visual look as it slightly "floats" from your wall.  These are perfect for your home, office, master bathrooms (waterproof) and even outdoor covered porches/patios.

*OPTION SELECTIONS

Museum Quality Archival PEARL Silver Halide Fine Art Prints [FAP]:

Silver Halide PEARL (Metallic) Art Print with unparalleled 3-D depth, tone & sharpness as compared to regular prints. This museum quality archival paper and process uses a patented combination of film and laminate layers that result in a striking, 3-Dimensional, extremely vivid, lasting image on an ultra-bright pearlescent / metallic background (archival value rated at 100 years in home display and 200 years in dark storage). Available options are "Print Only", "Print with Mat & Backing" and "Fully Gallery Framed."

PEARL paper contains a very special component: pearly mica crystals. Based on the natural mica, they are covered with a thin layer of metal oxides, for example, titanium dioxide. Through an interplay of transparency, refraction, coating and multiple reflections, one can discern silver-white and metallic reflection effects. Depending on the display and lighting (natural light, incandescent, halogen, flourescent, etc.) the microscopic pearly mica crystals capture light in varied ways to offer a truly vibrant photo.  These lend pictures such an intense warmth and depth; they become a true sensation for the eye.

NEW!!! - METAL PRINTS Infused on Aluminum -- Art Photography's "High Definiton" Display!

 

My art reaches a whole new level of vibrancy and clarity. Although my silver halide photographic art prints are very high quality, you will be amazed by these modern aluminum prints -- It's like the first time you saw an HDTV! An advanced chemical sublimation process infuses photos onto polished aluminum with amazing HD clarity – Museum quality, scratch resistant, water-proof, archival, lightweight and no glass or matting necessary. These ultra modern prints on an aluminum substrate were once only available for museum & commercial display ... Now it is available for your home and office with many sizes to chose from.

 

The delicate and unique process in making these stunning artworks on the aluminum display is actually quite comparable in price to regular "framed / matted / fragile glass" prints.  It is actually less expensive with larger sizes (when one accounts for the cost of framing regular prints with the wood frame, mat & glass).   Also, the advantages of METAL ART PRINTS are extensive -- Some benefits include:

 

  • VISUALLY SUPERIOR -- The optical clarity, rich tones and almost 3-Dimensional vivid feel of these metal prints is absolutely stunning ... Nothing compares to them.
  • WATERPROOF -- Artwork can be displayed in a master bath or covered porch (no direct sunlight).  Will not be hurt by humidity or when sprayed with water!
  • SCRATCH RESISTANT -- Very resilient and scratch resistant finish (comparable to a high end automobile paint finish).
  • NO GLASS  -- No glass required makes this media very lightweight, very safe (no fear of broken glass) and gives you a clear, direct-view, of the art.
  • NO MATTING • FULL EDGE-to-EDGE VIEW -- "No matting required" offers a full edge-to-edge display of your Hugo Cruz artwork.  Also, it provides for smaller wall space footprint (i.e. the total outside dimensions for a 36"x24" METAL PRINT will be nearly the same while a glass matted and framed 36"x24" print will have a total outside dimension of 49"x37" or more).
  • ARCHIVAL & EXTREMELY RESILIENT -- Your Hugo Cruz METAL ART PRINTS will virtually last forever (rated at 300+ years).
  • UV RESISTANT -- A UV resistant coating is characteristic of the process.  However, as with ANY fine artwork, no coating or work is UV proof.  Your artwork will fade over time when placed in direct sunlight.
  • MODERN, CONTEMPORARY with the "WOW!" Factor -- Vibrant and modern with the eye-catching "wow" effect, your Hugo Cruz METAL PRINT will be a focal point in any room.  METAL PRINTS are framed in an unobtrusive, elegant and lightweight aluminum frame with a brushed finish.
